What is the Astor College PTFA and how can you get involved?
Our PTFA is very new, having only been established early in 2018 and has been set up to help organise and support the fund raising events of the school. We have already run a quiz for the teachers, a boot fair and a Christmas Craft Fair and have lots more events planned so it’s an exciting time to get involved and help your child’s school. Each college department can bid for funds raised to buy those ‘extras’ the budget won’t stretch to.
At the moment the PTFA is run by a very small committee of volunteers. Moving forward, we would like to register with the Charity Commission and vote in 5 or 6 trustees who look after the finances and admin. Being a registered charity is hugely beneficial and will enable us to apply for grants but we do need more volunteers. You don’t have to be on the committee or attend meetings to help the PTFA, any time you can give would be hugely appreciated.
So if you’d like to help out with PTFA fundraising in any way, want to join the committee the next time there’s a vacancy, or just want to be kept up-to-date about what’s going on, please tick the boxes below and hand it in at the college office. We’re keen to get as many people as possible along to the meetings, so it would also be good to find out what days/times of day are most popular.
Alternatively, if you’d just like to know a little more about future fund raising events and what sort of help the PTFA need, please check our page on the college website regularly and follow us on facebook.com/astorcollegepta
